Frosty Double Daisy

Hello fellow crafters, it's Clare here with more winter ideas. I didn't go for the obvious choice of stamps on this one. I chose one of my favourite stamps, Double Daisy and decided to give it a touch of winter.
For this card I used:

First of all I stamped Double Daisy and the sentiment in Oak House Studios wine pigment ink pad and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then randomly went over the leaves of the double Daisy with a white wax crayon to cause a resist to create a frosty effect. Out came the lovely inks in a bottle and I continued to paint the Daisy with my red shades. Once Daisy had been painted I decided I wanted a splash of colour behind it. I mixed my green colours to create a wash for behind the flower. Finally after matting and layering I added a smattering of glitter to complete a frosty finish.

Good luck with your winter challenges. There is still time to get your entries in and be in with a chance of a wonderful prize.

Happy crafting,
Clare x x x
